Rock crawlers? Yes or no?

Im thinking about getting Rock Crawlers with 32s. Here is my crappy PS of just the wheels to see how it'd look. What do you think?




Here's my truck right now minus the waag.

i'm gonna say no to the Rockcrawlers... The Alcoas look good on the truck... but like said before they may not work well with larger tires

Yeah, I'm not going to put 32s on the Alcoas, if I keep them I'll stay with 31s. But if I get new rims I'll get 32s

screw the alcoas for 2 reasons.... 15x7 and 4.5 backspacing right there makes them basically worthless in my eyes.

on silver 100% go with a black rim I love rocks but if i where you i would get like those teflon wheels more classy.

btw is the a chop from my wheels LOL

Why would there be a problem wtih 32's? on ORR there ar quite a few guys running 33's on those rims with proper fitment, if you wheel your truck a lot, and even if you don't, your not going to get much better that what he has.


on that truck, I would say stick with the stockers, you pay bit extra for that package, why down grade?

Uhhh...noooo....I don't know what you're talking about....

But what are these teflon wheels wheels you speak of?



I love the Alcoas, but I want to be able to run a bigger tire and want one with less of a backspacing to kinda beef up the look a little.

If you do some reserach you will find out that you dont want to run anything over 11.50 width on 7 inch wheels. just because somebody does it doesnt me that its ok. It WILL wear the center of the tread down because you are pinching a tire onto a rim...

if your getting rocks cause your on a buget get the Soft 8's with the drilled holes instead of the waggon wheel style like mine it would look better.

i dont give a **** what people say a set of nice rocks or soft 8's are under or right around $200 you cant beat that with a stick man i love it
